UberCloud Recognized with three HPC Industry Awards

Today the UberCloud announced that it has been recognized in three leading HPC industry awards for two of its innovative engineering projects in the cloud. “We are proud and humbled for the two prestigious Hyperion Innovation Excellence Awards and the HPCwire Editors’ Choice Award,” said Wolfgang Gentzsch, President of UberCloud, “Our innovative projects on UberCloud’s Cloud Simulation Platform showcase engineers, how they can benefit from the cloud to accelerate their simulations and innovate.”

Advancement in AI & Machine Learning Calls For New HPC Solutions

High performance computing has gone through numerous shifts in the past few years. The new HPC, inclusive of analytics and AI, and with its wide range of technology components and choices, presents significant challenges to a commercial enterprise. A new report from Lenovo explores the intersection of HPC and AI, as well tips on how to choose the right HPC provider for your enterprise. 

Hyperion Research Launches Cloud Application Assessment Tool

Today Hyperion Research launched a new Cloud Application Assessment Tool. Available free of charge to the public, this tool is an interactive grading system to assess the characteristics of HPC applications to help understand whether they fit better on an on-premise HPC system or are they well suited for running in a public cloud. “By using this tool, end users will be able to see which characteristics of their applications drive or restrict the ability to run them in clouds, and what future improvements in public clouds may make their application fit better in the cloud. It also shows the characteristics that drive certain applications to stay on-premise.”

Finding a Solution for Ai in Government

A new special report from insideHPC, courtesy of Dell EMC and NIVIDa explores current machine learning applications in government. And this excerpt breaks down solutions for AI in government, including Dell EMC Ready Solutions. Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI are validated hardware and software stacks optimized to accelerate AI initiatives, shortening the time to architect a new solution by six to 12 months.

Today’s Application of Ai Within Government

Across the globe, governments are acknowledging the potential of AI technologies to impact our daily lives, from how we make purchasing decisions to improving our healthcare. But there are several reasons why government agencies may be hesitant to adopt AI technologies. A new insideHPC Guide, courtesy of Dell EMC and NVIDIA, explores what’s next for government AI, as well as already tangible results of AI and machine learning.

HiPEAC Vision 2019 Looks to the Future of Computing

“Today, the possibilities of an interconnected, heterogeneous and intelligent world are only just beginning to make themselves known. This stunning advancement in digital technology was made possible by ever-increasing performance at ever lower costs. However, physical limits mean we won’t be able to keep shrinking computing components while increasing performance for much longer. So where do we go from here? What are the main challenges and conditions for future developments, and where? The HiPEAC Vision 2019 explores all these questions, and more.”

New Report: PRACE in the EuroHPC Era

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe has published a new report: PRACE in the EuroHPC Era. PRACE is an international non-profit association with its seat in Brussels. “The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking will advance the European supercomputer landscape by completing the infrastructure pyramid at the top level with European leadership-class supercomputers. In a context of a strong international competition with USA, China and Japan, this development is highly expected by all stakeholders of HPC in Europe. For the European HPC users from science and industry, i.e. industrials and SMEs, the seamless integration of these new top-level systems and services into the existing European HPC-ecosystem is an issue of paramount importance.”

XTREME-D IaaS Platform Works to Simplify HPC Cloud Cluster Management

An IaaS platform can help keep HPC cloud cluster users out of the cluster management business. A new white paper from XTREME-D, “Point and Click HPC: The XTREME-Stargate IaaS Platform”, explores how the Stargate platform, that provides a web portal to cluster resources, can increase user efficiency, eliminate cluster administration costs and acts as a “pay-as-you-go” cloud model, simplifying HPC cloud clusters and making them more accessible.

Podcast: Announcing the New CryptoSuper500 List

Today OrionX Research today announced that Bitcoin and BTC.com top the first release of the CryptoSuper500 list. The list recognizes cryptocurrency mining as a new form of supercomputing and tracks the top mining pools. “The growth of the cryptocurrency market has put the spotlight on emerging decentralized applications, the new ways in which they are funded, and the software stack on which they are built.” Cryptocurrency technologies include blockchain, consensus algorithms, digital wallets, and utility and security tokens.
